I was taking stock of my fridge the other day and noticed a half jar of pesto that I bought a couple weeks ago at Aldi. I didn’t want that pesto to go to waste, so today I whipped up these fun Pesto Pizza Rolls. They are a great appetizer or fun alternative to regular pizza if you want to change things up. You can eat them as-is or dip them into pizza sauce. Either way they’re super flavorful and have a wonderfully crispy cheese edge, similar to a deep dish pizza. 
I made my Pesto Pizza Rolls with pepperoni and mozzarella, but the sky really is the limit for fillings on these guys. You can do regular pizza sauce instead of pesto and you could do something like olives instead of pepperoni if you want to go meatless. Just stay away from really watery vegetables like tomatoes.
I made a simple homemade pizza dough for my Pesto Pizza Rolls, but if you don’t have the time, patience, or confidence to do it yourself you can always grab a ball of raw pizza dough at the store or your local pizza shop. Once the dough is ready to go this recipe is super fast!

Pesto Pizza Rolls

These Pesto Pizza Rolls are a fun way to change up your pizza routine with swirls of cheese, pesto, and pepperoni, plus lots of crispy edges! 

3/4 cup warm water ($0.00)
2 tsp active dry or instant yeast ($0.18)
1/2 Tbsp sugar ($0.03)
1 Tbsp olive oil ($0.13)
2 cups flour (plus some for dusting) ($0.34)
1 tsp salt ($0.03)


1/2 cup pesto ($0.85)
2 oz. pepperoni ($1.10)
1 cup shredded mozzarella ($1.33)
1/2 cup pizza sauce (for dipping, optional) ($0.33)

Combine the warm water, yeast, and sugar, and stir until the yeast is dissolved. Let the mixture sit for about five minutes or until the yeast has developed a layer of foam on top of the water.

Meanwhile, add 1 cup of the flour to a large bowl along with the salt.

Once the yeast has become foamy, add the olive oil to the yeast mixture, then pour the mixture into the bowl with the flour and salt. Stir until a thick batter forms. Begin to stir in more flour, a little at a time, until it forms a ball of dough that you can no longer stir with a spoon.

Turn the ball of dough out onto a clean surface dusted with flour. Knead the dough, adding a small amount of flour as you go, for about five minutes. You should have used around 2 cups flour total from the very beginning, give or take a little.

Place the kneaded dough back in the bowl, cover it loosely, and let it rise until double in volume. Once doubled, begin preheating the oven to 400ºF.

Punch the dough down, scrape it out of the bowl, and onto a floured surface. St...
